Nx titles dumper should show you the tid of all installed titles, refer to the CSV list it will be in there.

title IDs > Show List of Installed Games (CSV)

As for icons not working I'm 99% sure all the icons work but if it's a grey questionmark I will gladly fix it.

If you are stuck there might be an answer for you here; https://sodasoba1.github.io/NSW-Custom-Game-Icons/
tried it with the three examples above many times with different icons, but still none of them gets overwritten...

so does that mean you can use the contents directory for forwarders like hbmenu? Will gladly correct my answer.
yes exactly custom icons will works with forwarders as they have a related TID

sounds like you might not have the correct title ID

in the example below you can see my sonic3 AIR title ID is different from the TID in the repo to what has been dumped from my switch, it can happen the majority of my repo is based off US TID,

you can copy TID from CSVList and copy the TID to the output section if the TitleIDs don't match what you have installed on the switch

I would also kindly ask for some icons:
Dr. Kawashimas Brain Training
Tricky Towers
Naruto Shippuden Ultimate NInja Storm 4

Dr. Kawashimas Brain Training is in nxgic repo already

where do I import the installed title list from?
you guys know the directory path?
and thanks for the icons!
edit: adding kawashami per the add new function did work, but the following two prompted an error which denied me adding more at this way. i manually dragged them into the folder entitled after the title id, but they appear as grey question marks...

read my guide:
https://sodasoba1.github.io/NSW-Custom-Game-Icons/usingnxgic/#installing-nx-title-list-dumper

also the likely scenario with the 2 icons i posted on here are saved as webp i'm unsure if thats due to gbatemp or your browser
I'll update my repo now so they are on there or pullable

NX-GIC has been updated to v1.4.0

Main feature: SteamGridDB Api integration, read the release notes on github or first post of this thread

(If you encounter any issue, please extract to a new folder and see if that helps)
View attachment 309665
Congratulations on another release.
Seems you fixed a few minor bugs, I'll rewrite the guide begining this evening!



Minor bug: inputting FTP details and saving for the first time it will say you have not input credentials, to fix this simply input details and save after that close down nx-gic then reopen nx-gic and it should work correctly after that

it keeps saying it cannot find titles.csv despite titles.csv is in the root directory of switch sdcard. i can grab it via FTP just fine.

EDIT:
lol I'm dumb. just need to manually copy paste the full path to the titles.csv in the windows app setting
